Four Principles for a Just Transition to a Sustainable Economy

I excerpted the key points from an article by the above name from the P2P Foundation website, below. See the link and article for fuller descriptions:

The following is excerpted from a report on the Strategies for a New Economy conference, by John Wiseman.

1. Replacing corporate control of key economic and financial decisions with democratically accountable institutions and processes.

2. Reprioritising local rather than global production and distribution systems – particularly in relation to finance, energy and food.

3. Implementing a rapid and complete shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy, along with the other energy efficiency and demand management measures needed to reduce the likelihood of runaway climate change.

4. Shifting growth priorities from the consumption of energy and materials to ecological sustainability, health and wellbeing.
